We build WordPress websites for US-based small-business clients. We are looking for that SPECIAL designer / design team that can bring some new energy and creativity to our team.
Right now, we are handling all projects in house and I'd like to find someone that can take over the systems we have put together to build sites efficiently.
We use WordPress and build customized sites using existing themes.
One theme we use frequently is DIVI, and the right person will have worked with this theme, or other modulated themes like it.
We will provide info up front, sample sites, and possible links to current site with content, or other relevant sites to mimic or use for inspiration.
Some will have a good amount of content, other times we will pull stock photos for placeholders or even stock content and focus on the layout and structure.
Most sites are 10 pages or less.
These are small-business websites, most of the time for existing companies, who know they need a professional, mobile-friendly website and are hiring us to do it for them without them having to micromanage us.
They are good at providing feedback, but are not good at providing content so it is up to us to run with it, SHOW them what we need, and get it done.
We budget between 15-20 hours per project, some take a little more, some take a little less.
The Right Person
This person should know WordPress like the back of their hand, understand plugins, themes, CSS ,and all the other special things that make WordPress great.
This person should have experience building and launching sites from scratch, from conceptualization to well-ranking, professional, modern & elegant websites.
A big part of our sales is only bringing in the right type of projects, which means we do the same thing over and over again, use the same themes, plugins, solve the same issues, etc.
The right person for the job will be able to take our directions and guidelines, and then knock out creative, mobile-friendly websites with minimal instruction on a dependable basis.
This person will also have an eye to detail, the little things, fonts, CAPS, etc.
Looking for more of a WordPress expert than a traditional designer, but an eye for detail is essential.
If you are a designer that can do logos, know CSS and good at WordPress, you are at the head of the list. = )
This person should be intimately familiar with:
• Responsive Design
• Themes & plugins
• General marketing tools & practices ( SEO, conversion, lead gen, email marketing)
• custom theme & plugin development
• mysql, as it related to Wordpress, resetting admin password, etc.
• moving and backing up wordpress sites
• Problem solver
I've got a few projects ready for design/development, and would like to interview a few people, and then provide an initial project at an agreed rate.
If we find the right match, I'm comfortable working at a flat rate per month or on a per project basis. I just want someone that can get the work done, and work with us to work smarter and not harder.
The systems are in place, let's make it work!
